It was tough finding people who had early TS1s but no TS2. I did find one person that had a TS1 in early December last year and was waitlisted. They made it off the waitlist in May.
That would be me! I just thought I would pop in here and let you all know that I do feel your pain! If any of you need someone to commiserate with/give you hope for later let me know
I had TS1, then heard nothing until May, when I got a call from KB, and she asked me if I had any additions to my file, and of course I was all "Um, not really..." I did get off the waitlist in the first cycle of waitlist admissions, naturally it was AFTER I had already paid my non-refundable deposit to UVA. If you want to talk to a very very unspectacular person who somehow ended up at HLS anyway, just shoot me a PM. Good luck, and I hope you all hear something very very soon!
